    I like it, and I think a solution for parts being less accessible and to make the system more modular would be to attach all panels to a 360° hinge. So fully unlocked you could open it like a book, the lid, C panel and D panel would open from the main chassis allowing access to both sides of the mobo. If you're already making it heavy/bulky a stronger frame to support such a hinge shouldn't be a problem.

    I know I'll have some dead time later, I might tinker with my little fantasy design a little more for the hell of it. I'll probably bend the pipes around the fans properly instead of the unrealistic angles, and then even add two more pipes to match the fact that the side vents have two pipes routed in front of them as it is in the x5 v6. Then I'll try and get the scale better and actually take a stab at a more detailed layout for what goes under all those heatsinks. By my reckoning, the CPU, GPU, CPU VRMs, GPU VRMs, VRAM, and PCH are what all need to be accounted for under there?

    Not sure if they've always been up or not but i just noticed today that Aorus has the v7 specs and marketing info up on their page.

    The track pad eagle is red now....

    Not thrilled with the port placements on the x7. Looks like all the USB are on the left and two USB-c are on the right(one being thunderbolt 3). I'd rather have seen a Thunderbolt 3 port on the rear and another USB-A on the right. Oh well, at least they removed the covered up VGA and HDMI ports.

    I'm really looking forward to getting one of these. The 4k gsync option is probably the one I'll get. Hopefully the QHD version is the same updated screen as in the AW17r4 and not the one with horizontal lines and banding like on the v6. If they fixed that issue, this could be one of the best 17" 1080 laptops available. I thought the v6 was great but that screen was a real deal breaker to me.

    Kinda sad that it took them this long to refresh their lineup tbh. Even Gigabyte's own P series laptops received their refresh a while back. I THINK quite a few people (myself) included decided to get the V6 since they took so long to bring their V7s out.

    I think everyone who was previously using that screen has abandoned it.

    Did you guys ever try swapping them out with something better?

    Don't think we actually got that many of them, just on to newer models.

    x5 v7 unboxing:
    Oh, and for the record, there is exactly 0 unboxing going on in the video.... there's not even a box to be unboxed.
